Thoroughput of link between MIC and PFE in Juniper MX80

‎03-30-2018 05:05 AM

Hello.
We want to expand MX80 with MIC-3D-2XGE-XFP.

But found in network next scheme:

JUNIPER_SCHEME.png

 

Bus speed is 20G between MIC and PFE

But is not clear is this speed maximum for both direction (in/out) or this is maximum for one of direction?

Could someone help me to resolve this question?

Hi,

MIC-3D-2XGE-XFP is supported in MX80.

 

Please refer to the below table in techpub link.

 

Table 4: MICs Supported by MX80 and MX104 Routers

 

MICs Supported by MX Series Routers

Hi,

 

You get 10g full duplex in/out per port.  The diagram indicates channel of 20G bus unit (pfe <-> ix) that is queued when you have 4x Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with XFP. 

 

  • In case of 2x Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with XFP = 20g per MIC (MIC-3D-2XGE-XFP which is MX80 supported)
  • You have 2x empty slots in MX80. (Max you get out of these two slots is 40G (20G per slot) by having MIC-3D-2XGE-XFP per slot) or 20G from 1xGE port and 4x10G  build in model so its called MX80 (80G /160G)

 

  • In case of 4x Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with XFP = 40g per MIC (MIC-3D-4XGE-XFP which is "not" MX80 support, but is MX240,MX480,MX960 supported)
